And on Sunday, to the city we went to have a Sunday Afternoon Tea with Cecelia and Connie . .
A pretty table -- so Provencal in color reminding us that it was the first day of Spring and a lovely day as well
A wonderful rabbit, a terra cotta carrot and some dried magnolia leaves made the perfect centerpiece
Sandwiches, strawberries and cream . .
Cookies, wee muffins and tiny poppy seed tea cakes
And tea, of course -- our favorite, a French blood orange -- what is left in the tin is the last of this amazing tea -- they have enough for one more pot -- which we'll share the next time I come visiting
And to finish --
Christopher Elbow Chocolates. If you haven't had one, you've missed a great treat. They are absolutely the best chocolates!!!!
The afternoon passed all too quickly and I headed back to Linderhof. The car filled with gifts (and a box of Elbow Chocolates!).
It was the perfect way to spend the first day of Spring!!!! A leisurely afternoon tea with friends Connie and Cecelia! What a treat!
